“Potential, but no attention to detail”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

This place has wonderful staff and pretty good food (ask them to cook you dinner!). But the hotel misses the mark several times.
The mattresses and pillows are like concrete, shared bathrooms don't lock and the rooms are ridiculously spartan with no bedside table or lamp.

Room Tip: By no fault of their own, Princess is beside a mosque. So get ready for the megaphone next to your w...

A cheap hotel up a back street. About 10 minutes walk from Luxor Temple. Rooms are very basic. Only a few rooms with onsuites. Not much in rooms other than two twin beds and a stool. Two shared bathrooms per floor. Very noisy hotel as a Mosque is only a few metres away. Fan in room. Room was not cleaned durring the 4 days I was there but did not expect it anyway. Washing done reasonable price. Dont expect too much. Plus point free wifi.

Room Tip: Not 207 too close to the mosque

The hotel is cheap and central but the manager lets the place down.
Things that should have been simple to fix we're left until the guests complained. Everytime he "arranged" a trip it failed to fully meet the promises.
Chose another hotel.

The manager provide very hospitality, and very good service to any trip planing and transportation informations. He helps me a lot from the beginning to the end, and he even sees me off in the train station. If u want to go to luxor for a nice trip, u should go the princess hotel and find the manager! His name s Maswd.

Princess hotel is great. We received a warm welcome and the staff helped us eagerly with finding tours and giving tips. They have good connections to do a tour to Valley of the Kings and Queens, as well as a balloon tour over Luxor. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were really clean.
Thank you for everything!
Kind regards from Belgium

In early-mid October 2011 I stayed at Princess Hotel with my 11-yo nephew for 5 days. This was one of our cheapest stays on our trip and yet the room was spacious, with air-con, the en suite bathroom had sufficient hot water and at good pressure and the staff were very helpful in all sorts of ways. They helped us with hiring car+driver but I would advise that you try to bargain the cost down a little, and check exactly what you are getting: ensure they know just what you want, starting and finish time, AND ensure that your driver does too, and/or understands sufficient English to cater to your requirements. For our trip to Abydos and Dendara we were made to hurry with the time we spent at the last temple: the driver said the temple closing time was 3pm but it was 4pm. But apart from hat, I think it's a great hotel, oh and you can get your laundry done really well and cheaply, too. Really nice people.
